Krause, Carl (7 June 1840 1 9??)

 

CARL KRAUSE, who was born in Germany, June 7, 1840, resides in section 21, town of Stettin, where he carries on general farming and raises Guernsey cattle, owning 320 acres of land, 120 of which is in timber. His parents were Wm. and Louise Krause, the former of whom was a public official in Germany.  

 

In 1867 Carl Krause the younger came to the United States and remained in the city of New York for two years and reached Wausau, Wis., in December, 1869, where he secured work as clerk in a store.  

 

Afterward, for about twelve years, he taught school in the towns of Stettin and Rib Falls, Marathon County, and in other sections, and then began farming. At that time all this part of the country was covered with woods. Mr. Krause has about 200 acres of his land cleared, clearing eighty acres of the same by himself.

 

 He married Henrietta Weber, a daughter of Fred and Frederica Weber, of the town of Rib Falls, and they have had ten children: Annie, wife of Edward Gehrpe of Stettin; Emma, of Wausau; Louise, wife of Alexander Trantow, of the town of Maine; Ida, a teacher for eleven years in the town of Maine; William, Edwin, Margaret and Arthur, all at home and two that died in infancy. Mr. Krause and family are members of the Methodist Episcopal Church. In politics he is a Republican and has served as assessor and as treasurer of the town of Stettin. He belongs to the Stettin Mutual Fire Insurance Company.
